It was great to arrive in Nepal and have a choice of good beers behind the bar, but nothing intrigued me more than Everest. Everything to do with Nepal is Everest related so when I ordered this I hoped it wasn’t going to be as bad as the tacky souvenirs on offer around the corner, and thankfully it didn’t disappoint. Light in taste, Everest isn’t just any premium beer, this is the ultimate beer to drink after a gruelling hike to Everest base camp at 5,340m, and if you didn’t fancy the hike then Everest is pretty much a perfect beer just to sip in the sun. Not my favourite Nepali beer but definitely up there so I’ll give Everest a 4 pint award.
